Happy Birthday to elisi! I hope you have a wonderful day.

Okay, so I've been off in the Tumblr-verse where fandom often finds the best crack to get excited over. It is also surprisingly easy to avoid drama if you try. Anyway, here is a lovely example of some of the crack available. Put simply, this needs to be real, and I don't even watch Supernatural.
27th-Sep-2012 10:24 am - Day late and a dollar short as usual
Why didn't anyone tell me there is a legit ST:TNG crossover with Doctor Who? (Well at least as legit as the X-Men/Next Gen crossover was, so it is actually legally sanctioned by both parent companies and is actually licensed rather than a fan comic) It's going to take AGES to get a hold of all of the parts. Especially since I am BROKE.

Curious parties can find more info here. At least the art doesn't look too bad from the cover and the story sounds interesting. My main gauge for these things is if fandom has done a better job.

Next assignment for everyone is to make SuperWhoLock a reality.
28th-Jul-2012 08:36 am - I am still a total dork.
So yeah, the call was too great to resist. So I did it again.

angelfirenze come play with me. Please? Anyone? Come on he's only got one follower.
22nd-Jun-2012 09:04 pm - Oh world, why you so crazy
Of all the groups I play around in, if any were to be hit by a cease and desist letter, I wouldn't think it would be the online knitting social network. I mean I realize that Ravelypics and Olympic Games might get confused. I mean one contains great feats of athletic prowess. The other contains prowess pertaining to yarn. Of course as a member of a group that denigrates the gallant athletes, I probably don't understand how insulting I am to all the actual sponsors like Dow Chemical, Coca-Cola and P&G. I mean my knitted socks with an ring pattern might impede theirs sales. The horror.

The best part, the USOC 'apologized' for the letter and asked us to make them free stuff to sell give away to athletes.

The moral: when a group of people claim to be over 2 million strong, that is not income potential. That is a group of people you may not want to belittle and piss off. *waves her dpns in defiance*
30th-May-2012 09:05 am - I am such a nerd

I should totally be avoiding a time suck like this, but I am helpless in the face of Yukio's adorkableness and angst.

angelfirenze come play with me!!! Does not matter what character, it's like a free for all with the indie players. It'll be good practice. Just make a character blog and come play!!
I saw something under a bench. I thought, 'That can't be what I think it is.' Sadly I was wrong. Tell me, what kind of a person leaves a used tampon under a bench in a fitting room. OMGWTFIHATEPEOPLE!!!!

While I'm bitching about work, let me say you should all be proud I didn't smack a bitch today. I had a woman wearing a shirt which proudly proclaimed, 'Don't spread my wealth. Spread my work ethic.' Woman was entitled as all fuck. Questioned everything I did like I had the brains of a toddler. I wanted to ask her how she and her work ethic had time to shop when I am working one of two jobs so I can afford rising bills.

Okay so I really just wanted to say 'Fuck You!'
18th-May-2012 09:44 pm - So just a week before my birthday...
Today at work I had a customer ask me how my grandchildren were. When I managed to squeak out that I was only 35 she gave a a skeptical look. I quit at life. Seriously. *weeps*

There isn't that much fucking gray in my hair dammit!!!

In other news, I need people to talk me out of starting a independent rp tumblr. Because I'm already writing head canon. angelfirenze I miss rp-ing sooo bad. Why? Why does real life have to thwart us? Sirius needs to give James his quiche!!!!
12th-May-2012 10:56 pm - The good, the bad and the dorky!
The good: I got the part time job I was interviewing for, barring irreconcilable differences. I am praying that these do not occur because I would be sad. This means less free time but also means more money, so yay!

The bad: My car is still cranky, but has yet to explode. So my extra money will be syphoned off to save for a new one. Well that and my damn loans that have had the payments spike up. I love how all the damn payments go up at once.

This means that I am not going to see The Avengers for a while, so I am spoiling myself and finding other distractions.

Which leads me to the Dorky: Tom Hiddleston (Loki in the Avengers movie) doing an impromptu speech from Henry V:

Why can't we have Shakespeare presented like this in schools here in the states rather than the dry belabored presentations most of us got. I count myself lucky that my Shakespeare teacher in high school was passionate about the subject that she found material to get us excited. She got a room full of teenagers to sit rapt through a black and white movie with subtitles when she showed us Throne of Blood. (Which is awesome by the way, and if you haven't seen it and you like 'the Scottish Play' you should check it out.)


I know, I'm preaching the the choir here. I'll get off my soapbox now. TTFN, folks. Wish me luck on the new job.
29th-Mar-2012 09:39 pm - I can not believe he's two already
Leaving town tomorrow to go up and visit my nephew (oh and my brother and his wife) for the nephew's birthday. I shall be leaving the laptop at home and just taking the Nook Tablet (best taxmas present EVER) so I will be able to check in, but not reply. I should be back Sunday.

Holler if there's anything interesting going on.
26th-Mar-2012 08:45 am - Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday to angelfirenze! I hope your day goes well.

I was going to send you a quiche, but Sirius stole it to give to James. *giggles*
Here is more of the story. Also, if you happened to read the first part, you may want to check back as there were some changes made. I have also realized it is only a matter of time before I get a paid account because I need Rin and Yukio icons dammit.

Title: Colossus (Blue Exorcist/ Angel: the Series crossover)
Spoilers: All of A:tS, not comic compliant. All of the Blue Exorcist anime
Rating: teen
Disclaimer: I don't own it. Joss and others own Angel. Kazue Kato and others own Blue Exorcist
Summery: They had been running for so long, and both longed for a place to rest, if only for a short while.

19th-Feb-2012 03:33 pm - Stand back, I'm going to try SCIENCE
So I heard this on the Knit 1 Geek 2 podcast, and I thought all of my geeky friends would appreciate it.

So basically there is a group called Arc Attack that among its other geeky hobbies, makes music with tesla coils. If you don't know what a tesla coil is and you don't want to follow the wiki link, basically it makes lightning. Arc Attack takes tesla coils and a faraday cage to make music. It is really freaking cool.

Here is an example where Adam Savage from Mythbusters being serenaded by a tesla coil version of the Dr. Who theme.

I love living in the future.
7th-Feb-2012 11:58 am - In which I troll my own dreams
So I can't remember exactly WHAT the dream was about, I just know it had something to do with FMA, and that at one point it ended with my inner troll declaring 'Hey, that character can't transmute without a circle!!!' Sad thing is, I can't even remember who the offending character was.

Also of note, I'm in the process of setting up an AO3 account, because I need a place besides here and TTH to display my fanfic, and frankly The Pit scares me.
I should have been cleaning today. I should have been knitting today. I should have done my taxes today. Instead I had a tiny plot bunny this morning while trying to sip my coffee and wake up. So I wrote, a lot.

So I submit to you the fruits of that labor. I would love a little input, even though you aren't familiar with the fandoms, if you have a bit of spare time. I am looking for concrit of the style and flow as well as the plot itself. angelfirenze specifically, if you could read the last scene and tell me if I am having the same problem I had with Ed and Al during the RP I would greatly appreciate it.

So a real quick explainations since this is a long arse entryCollapse )
On days like we are having here (cold, damp and rainy) I desperately wish I had a kotatsu. While I do not thing it would be nearly as romantic as it is shown in anime, the idea of a table with a blanket and heater built in seems awesome. Actually the idea of any furniture with a blanket and heater built in seems pretty cool.

I HATE being cold.
Like usual, Dox arrives late to the party.

So I happened upon these things called Mameshiba while watching various shows online and at first I was smitten by how damn cute they were. Seriously, I was rooting for commercials because I wanted the cute. Then I figured, anything that cute had to hit it off with anime fandom so I Wiki-ed them and found their official site and what they are actually supposed to be.

Apparently they are "not quite a bean and not quite a dog but rather a hybrid of both. They appear out of nowhere to offer random bits of trivia whether you asked for it or not." So I watched some of the little shorts (seriously 30 seconds each) and giggled like a loon as the reason for that phrasing became clear. The trivia is often slightly warped (and sometimes factually shaky) and often comes when the person would least want to hear warped trivia. How warped, you ask. Well today I learned that a koala's appendix is 2 meters long...from a jellybean...that was about to be eaten.

So anyone who wants to giggle, or just squeak at the cute, check out the Mameshiba website. If you don't want to hear the trivia, just avoid the videos section.
How can I not react to the news that, Benedict Cumberbatch who is playing Sherlock Holmes in the BBC's Sherlock as well as playing Smaug the Dragon in The Hobbit shall be cast as the villain in the newest JJ Abrams Star Trek flick.

Now I have not seen the first 'New' Trek movie since I generally resented the fact that they needed to revamp the franchise in the first place. Yes, the original was kind of cheesy, but it was damn fine cheese damn it. Thus I decided that no good Abrams character wasn't getting any of my money darn it.

So now that the 'sequel' is in the news I have heard more about the original Abrams flick and have been informed that the 'revamp' is actually more of an AU. So the series and universe I grew up with exists entirely seperate from JJ Abrams new universe. Now I am suddenly intrigued.

Now here is where I get really nerdyCollapse )
Only not really since I ended up only doing two of the things on my list. Sadly the socks never came to fruition. This makes more sense when you realize I finally finished the gloves that matched the scarf I finished yesterday about two hours ago.

If I ever plan on doing this again, remind me to start in March.

Oh well, I get to see Bugaboo in a few hours.

So did I miss anything exciting while I was furiously knitting?
So I'll post about FMA instead.

This is a tumblr link, but I am posting because hell yes this woman changed my world.
Arakawa-sensei how are you so awesome?

I do agree with the fact she bears a great resemblance to Paku Romi who plays Ed in the Japanese. (Hell even if it was Ms Paku, she would be a life changer since I heard the sub long before I ever heard it in English).
26th-Oct-2011 11:53 pm - It's very difficult to type...
With yarn in your hands.

In case anyone was wondering, I have been maintaining radio silence due to the fact I have decided that I am going to be doing hard core Christmas knitting this year. While this is nice because it lets me justify buying fancy yarn to play with, it also means I have a lot of shit (gloves, two scarves, two pairs of fancy socks) to pound out with just eight short weeks to do it. (That's right kids, it's eight weeks until Christmas...have fun). Unfortunately, the next eight weeks also happen to be the busiest of the year at my job.

So if I am not working, or doing chores, I have yarn in my hands right now. So unless I have something incredibly interesting to say, or it is too early for me to knit without dropping a row of stitches, I am probably going to be kind of quiet until my needles are no longer smoking. Feel free to mock my yarnish ambitions at any time.

So anyone have any good podcasts or books on tape they would recommend for listening while I am working on the pressies.

Happy Birthday to elisi! I hope your day is lovely.
3rd-Oct-2011 07:49 pm - Don't Forger 03Oct'11
So in FMA fandom, today is 'Don't Forget' day, the day when Edward and Alphonse Elric started out on their journey. Their first step in this journey consisted of burning their house to the ground so that they had no home to return to. They could only move forward.

So in honor of that momentous day, I wanted to do a little post to try and sucker convince people to take a chance on either the show or the manga. As usual I am going to be focusing on Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood rather than the first anime, because that version of the anime, as well as the manga speak to me more than the first anime does. Which doesn't mean the first one is bad, just that I empathize with Brotherhood more.

Rather yammer on and on about the show, I am going to show people vids by people who are far more talented than I am, and let the pictures do the talking. I'm going to hide most of these behind a cut, but this first one I wanted to post outside the cut to try and entice you to come into the post and see more pretty.

This video is by Vinurify, it is called "We're Empty" and it is beautiful. If you watch nothing else here, watch this vid. Seriously. It takes scenes from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and the movie based on the first anime Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa and creates something that speaks to the heart of both shows.

And now we move on to a few fan made trailers.Collapse )
26th-Sep-2011 10:40 pm - SO about that Prompt.
I'm on page ten and I just now managed to actually get them into the same area as each other. Long story is LONG. I'm having a blast writing it, though.

ETA 9/27: Page 17 and they may actually have a chance to speak to each other, which was actually the whole point of the prompt, you know.
